    I have been working at Volvo Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company with fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    There is a lot of corporate politics due to the nature of so many international positions. It is a cut throat corporate environment. They say they are all about the employee but you feel like you don't have a voice and its sort of dog eat dog.

    Advice to Management

    HR is sweeping most issues under the rug so upper management never finds out about any major issues. If the upper management really wants to find out about wrong doing, go to the corporate attorneys and ask them about employee related matters or which departments have "recurring" problems with managers, supervisors, etc. So basically you could weed out problem supervisors and managers that are not treating their employees well.
